    Re: Fox News announces candidate line-up for prime-time debate

    I find this article interesting, especially after my chance encounter yesterday evening with a lady whom I would say is of the religious right persuasion. We met at a cruise-in where my nephew was admiring her husband's Model T Ford. Don't know how this came up, I can only tell you that I didn't initiate the conversation, but she was saying how Donald Trump "tells it like it is" and how our country really needs him. I really didn't see that one coming. Then this morning I ran across this article which explains (sort of) it all perfectly.

    Here's the link: https://www.yahoo.com/politics/why-a...261597616.html

    Jeb Bush’s Choice of Words Upsets Asian-Americans

    Updated, 12:55 p.m. | While trying to soothe feelings among Hispanics for use of the term “anchor babies,” former Gov. Jeb Bush of Florida appears to have offended some in the Asian-American community.

    Mr. Bush said on Monday that it was “ludicrous” to suggest that he was using a slur to talk about Hispanics when discussing birthright citizenship. He went on to explain that he was largely referring to people from Asian countries who sneak into the United States planning to give birth.

    “No matter which ethnic group you’re referring to, ‘anchor babies’ is a slur that stigmatizes children from birth,” said Representative Judy Chu, a California Democrat, who was the first Chinese-American elected to Congress. “All that is accomplished through talk of anchor babies — be they from Latin America, Asia, Europe or Africa — is to use xenophobic fears to further isolate immigrants.”

    It is a rather long article so I will provide a link: http://www.nytimes.com/politics/firs...mericans/?_r=0

    The Anti-Birthright-Citizenship Brigade
    Meet the lawyers with an alternative history of the 14th Amendment. By Pema Levy | Fri Aug. 28, 2015

    For the past several years, the issue of birthright citizenship has slowly worked its way into the Republican agenda. Bills to end birthright citizenship for undocumented immigrants have routinely cropped up in Congress. So-called "anchor babies" have become a political target on the right. But now, thanks to GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump's call to end birthright citizenship for the children of undocumented immigrants, the issue is front and center, forcing the other 16 Republican candidates to make an uncomfortable choice: support rolling back the 14th Amendment, which granted equal rights to former slaves after the Civil War, or look weak on unauthorized immigration.

    Enter John Eastman and Lino Graglia, two conservative constitutional scholars offering the Republican candidates a third option: an alternative history of the 14th Amendment. In their telling, the amendment was never intended to grant citizenship to the children of undocumented people. In other words, Trump and those who agree with him are not calling to repeal the 14th Amendment. They are calling to restore it.

    Re: Fox News announces candidate line-up for prime-time debate

    Have you wondered who would be his running mate if Donald Trump becomes the Republican Party nominee? There's at least one person wanting the job, evidently.


    Cruz, Trump in Secret Talks

    Its a bromance with a payoffthe senator has been developing the billionaires support and their aides are even discussing joint events, but if Trump drops out, Cruz aims to clean up.
    Donald Trump and Ted Cruzs mutual admiration is turning into a conservative bromanceone that could have a huge strategic payoff for the Texas senators presidential campaign.

    Behind the scenes, Cruz has been methodologically developing Trumps support. The two candidates have met in person at least five times and talk by phone occasionally. And in the future, they may even hold events together.

    The two campaigns privately discussed a possible joint event this year in Washington, D.C., and Cruz was invited to join Trumps infamous trip to the Mexico border, though a scheduling problem prevented him from attending, sources told The Daily Beast.

    In terms of Trumps civility, if youre nice to him, hell be nice to you. And Cruz has been nice. Cruz is playing the long game and hopes that if he survives and Trump doesnt, the billionaire will swing to him. Hes the second choice for a lot of Trump voters, said a source familiar with the inner workings of the Trump campaign.

    Cruz has been cultivating Donald for some time, declining to criticize him after the immigration flap or the McCain controversy, sending messages through operatives, dropping by Trump Tower when in New York, the source continued.

    The two draw from similar segments of the Republican primary electoratesometimes, almost too similar. In the video launching his presidential bid, Cruz made a passing reference to make America great again, which has since become the Trump campaigns slogan. Trump applied for a trademark on the phrase shortly after the 2012 election.

    The Texas senators use of the phrase, even in passing, prompted the Trump Organization to reach out and warn the Cruz camp in a friendly manner not to use it again, according to a Trump campaign insider.

    The relationship has proved to be mutually beneficial for the two presidential candidates, but Cruz stands to benefit the most.

    If Trumps campaign were to flame out, it stands to reason that Cruz would be near the top of the list for potential endorsements. And even without an endorsement, Cruz would likely be a strong contender for Trump supporters looking for a new candidate to support. Cruzs PAC also received money from Trump: a $5,000 donation in 2014.

    Cruz is being very sly, the Trump campaign insider said. [He] attracts the same types of voter. A lot of second-choice voters for Trump are Cruz people Cruz wants those votes.

    Lindsey Graham Rails Against Iran Nuclear Deal Outside Kirsten Gillibrand’s Office
    Will Bredderman | 09/01/15 8:59pm
    South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, a Republican candidate for president, rallied with leading political figures and several hundred pro-Israel protesters outside Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s Manhattan office this evening, lambasting the New York legislator’s decision to support President Barack Obama’s Iran deal—which would drop international sanctions against the pariah state in exchange for a decade-long pause in its nuclear program.

    Standing in front of a rainbow banner raised in remembrance of gays killed by conservative Iranian authorities, Mr. Graham proclaimed his own Southern Baptist Christian faith and attacked the Islamic theocracy and its leader, Ayatollah Ali Khameinei. Behind him on the dais stood former Connecticut Sen. Joseph Lieberman, Clinton administration CIA Director R. James Woolsey and Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino—who unsuccessfully challenged Gov. Andrew Cuomo last fall—while on the podium hung a placard reading “Sen. Gillibrand: Don’t Surrender America! Stand with [Sen. Charles] Schumer!” Read more at: http://tr.im/ZkOjI

    BREAKING: Sarah Palin Will Join Donald Trump and Ted Cruz at ‘Stop Iran Deal’ Protest in DC

    Jim Hoft Sep 7th, 2015 12:45 am 14 Comments

    Sarah Palin announced Sunday night that she will be joining Donald Trump and Ted Cruz at the Stop the Iran Nuclear Deal rally in Washington DC on September 9th.

    "Think about it – what the heck are we even doing “negotiating” with an evil regime hellbent on destruction? The whole premise of this thing is wrong. It’s a long haul to D.C. for the rally but well worth it to take a stand against this asinine deal the President caved on. Our sworn enemy proclaiming, “Allah Akbar, death to America and death to Israel” still holds American hostages, boasts of using the $150 billion dollars we just freed up for them for nefarious uses, and laughs all the way to the banks of the Persian Gulf and beyond. Washington will hear the voices of “We The People” unified against this insanity. I look forward to joining Mr. Trump, Sen. Cruz, Mark Levin and other fed up patriots to rally the troops for America."
    – Sarah Palin
